–What is a cabaret?–
Bass Cabaret is an amazing mash-up of costumes, interactive exhibits, circus arts, performances and electronic dance music. – Examiner
Cabaret is a style of variety entertainment that began in France around the turn of the 19th century, later flourishing in Germany and the United States. It typically includes music, dance, comedy, and short theatrical pieces. Bass Cabaret is a new concept which maintains the old-world charm of a traditional cabaret, combined with a modern taste in music.
–What is the music like?–
Whether you’re into dubstep, trap, glitch or any other soundsystem-rich music — or if you’re more into the titillating and visually inviting elements of the circus arts — Bass Cabaret provides all of the above in one, big 19th-century-inspired costume party. – DJZ.com

Our most recent show in San Francisco, “Bass Cabaret: the Queen of Pearls’ Mad Tea Party,” was an Alice in Wonderland / Through the Looking Glass variety show and dance party with performance artists portraying your favorite characters from the classic novels as well as some new ones. Bass Cabaret featured RITUAL fashion as a headliner and an integral part of the theatrical experience, with their haute couture line of fashion being shown in an avant-garde Wonderland-themed runway show alongside performing artists including pole acrobats, burlesque artists, bellydancers, a stilt walker, and a violinist from both coasts representing New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and of course, San Francisco.
